Preble County deputies seek public’s help in identifying robber at truck stop

PREBLE COUNTY — Deputies are asking the public for help in identifying the man who they said robbed the Travel Centers of American Truck stop off I-70 earlier this month.

Photos released by the Preble County Sheriff’s Office show the robbery happening at the truck stop on U.S. 127 on Dec. 18.

Deputies said the robber gave the cashier a note demanding money and showed her a black handgun inside a blue Adidas bag.

“After getting the money from the drawer, the suspect ran out the doors into the truck lot and to the north/northwest. Once he disappears behind a semi trailer, neither he nor the vehicle are seen again on video,” deputies said in a statement.

Anyone with information on the robber is asked to call the Preble County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 937-683-8047.
